Biomolecules and cells form the basis of all life on earth. In Biomolecular Sciences, we aim at a fundamental understanding of molecules and cells, e.g. on how these building blocks work together to make life possible and on how dysfunction can lead to disease. The purpose of this minor is to offer the student in-depth knowledge of Biomolecular Sciences and/or Neuroscience. The student will gain insight into the latest knowledge of experimental cell biology during the first two courses of the minor (Experimental Cell Biology I and II). Next, students will choose a specific track, either Neurosciences or Biomolecular Sciences.
Understanding the foundation of life
How do biomolecules and cells work together to make life possible? How can dysfunction lead to disease? How can you study these fundamental processes?

Studying at VU Amsterdam
Amsterdam, a global city
It is not surprising that Amsterdam is known as the number one student city in the Netherlands.
On campus if we can. Online because we can.
What will your daily life as a student look like?
You can get a good idea of this if you take a look at a timetable and read about the courses for your programme in the study guide.
